A visually rich book, Phaidon's Black: Architecture in Monochrome casts a new eye on the beauty - and the drama - of black in the built world. Spotlighting more than 150 structures from the last 1,000 years, Black pairs engaging text with fascinating photographs of houses, churches, libraries, skyscrapers, and other buildings from some of the world's leading architects, including Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, and Eero Saarinen, David Adjaye, Jean Nouvel, Peter Marino, and Steven Holl.
Providing readers with a fresh new way to appreciate the built world through the aesthetics of black architecture, Black features vernacular and historic structures, including rural barns, Georgian townhouses, Icelandic chapels, and traditional Portuguese stone houses. The publication showcases works by some of the best architects of the twentieth century as well as some of the most celebrated contemporary architects. The buildings are organised in intriguing pairings, each entry illustrated with stunning photography and an engaging text that explores the role of black in the building's design.
